The Millennials May Never Forgive Biden And The Democrats

5 03 2020

And yes, lots of us began as Democrats, but will never vote for one again.

Political pundit, former Bill Clinton consigliere and Trump supporter Dick Morris has written:

Democrats are so afraid that they will repeat the mistake of 1972 — nominating a radical who can’t get elected — that they are now making the same mistake they made in 1968 — alienating the young people they need to win the election.

It’s not just that Biden beat Sanders on Super Tuesday; it’s how he did so.

After months of debate and dialogue, Sanders had an unmistakable lead.

Then the Empire closed in and took it all away. South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn endorsed Biden and the mechanized dominos fell into place.

The former VP won the first primary of his life in South Carolina and, in short choreographed order, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, and a host of local officials came out for Biden, marching in lockstep.  As they trampled Bernie, they trashed the passionate dreams of millions of Sanders’ followers.

But the machine will do Biden little good in November if he is the nominee.  These voters are already part of the Democratic base.  It is the millennial voters who will determine Biden’s fate should he secure the nomination, and these are precisely the Sanders supporters who are increasingly shocked and outraged by Biden’s electoral manipulation.

How is Biden to appeal to these millennials after defeating their candidate in the primary, stymying their beloved revolution with its glittering promises?

In 1968, the Democratic machine nominated another vice president, Hubert H. Humphrey, even though he never entered any primaries.  Anger overflowed and led millions of young Democrats to stay at home and let Nixon be elected.

Bear in mind that this Democratic nominating process has a very long way to go — five months. Week after week, young voters will see their enthusiasm and passion overcome by the Democratic machine.  As Yeats wrote, “too long a sacrifice / Can make a stone of the heart.”

As Biden’s ineptitude, oncoming senility, stale programs and hackneyed rhetoric contrast every week with Sanders’ utopian vision, the millennials will turn more and more sour on the former VP.

How can he then turn it around in November?

Particularly if Trump’s ratings continue their dramatic improvement, it will be hard to get them out for Biden.

So Joe’s victory may turn out to be Pyrrhic after all.

Can Trump beat Biden? In a heartbeat.[2]

There is very little that needs to be added to this political assessment, except Joe and Hunter Biden are up to their ears in crimes—in Ukraine and elsewhere.

And last but not least, Hunter Biden left his wife for his dead brother’s widow, and then dropped her too.  The #MeToo movement ought to love that.

What about a Hillary Clinton brokered deal at the Democratic Convention ?

Hillary is dead in the water. The Sanders people hate her, and blame her for his loss of the nomination in 2016.

She needs to spend the rest of her life in prison, without the chance of parole.

Biden Is In A Steep Mental Decline [UPDATED]

Johnathan Jones has reported for The Western Journal:

A top surrogate for the Bernie Sanders campaign told Fox News this week that former Vice President Joe Biden is “mentally deteriorating” and warned that Democrats will face a “disaster” if the presidential hopeful is nominated.

Justin Horwitz, a Democrat strategist and a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Thursday that there is a consensus among top Democrats that Biden is in a steep mental “decline.”

“He is a candidate that is mentally deteriorating,” Horwitz said Biden on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“People in the Democratic establishment say, ‘Oh don’t say that’. They really believe that they can shield Joe Biden from public scrutiny and the reality is, they can’t,” he said.

“We all see what’s going on here and it’s going to be a disaster if we nominate Joe Biden,” he continued.

Horwitz added that the former vice president is “a candidate in the decline” and noted that establishment Democrats are “perfectly aware” of his supposedly deteriorating mental state.

“He can’t get on stage without making some type of gaffe, and these aren’t the same gaffes that he made in his previous two failed presidential runs,” he said. “These gaffes are a lot more serious. These gaffes clearly indicate that he is not all there anymore.”

Describing Sanders as a “sharp debater,” Horwitz made a prediction that Biden’s declining cognitive state will be highlighted when the two candidates spar one-on-one during the next debate.

“I think Bernie picks up steam and ends up winning the nomination because Biden simply can’t debate,” he said.

While Horwitz stopped short of accusing top Democrats of conspiring to deny Sanders the party’s nomination, he did accuse them of attempting run interference to protect Biden from himself.

“They’re trying to protect him from being in public. Well, unfortunately, when you run for president, you’re going to be in public. People are going to see what’s happening,” Horwitz said.

Horwitz’s comments come after a month in which Biden has made a number of gaffes on the campaign trail.

While campaigning in South Carolina in February, Biden told potential voters, “My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.”

Days later, Biden was introducing Jamie Harrison, a candidate for the Senate in South Carolina, when he mistakenly introduced Harrison as the “next president.”

Biden also claimed that gun violence has killed 150 million Americans since 2007, mistakenly referred to Fox News host Chris Wallace as “Chuck” and stumbled while attempting to recite the Declaration of Independence.

“All men and women created by — go, you know, you know — the thing,” Biden said at an event in Texas on Monday.

These and other gaffes have led many Republicans and some Democrats to question the candidate’s cognitive health.

A number of the former vice president’s supporters told Fox News at the Biden rally Monday in Texas that they are concerned by his repeated gaffes.

“It’s very concerning. I mean, when he’s getting softballs thrown at him and he can’t answer the question,” a supporter told Fox News. “It’s getting rougher. The hard times haven’t even started.”

President Donald Trump has also turned the question of Biden’s mental acuity into a campaign issue.

At a Fox News town hall event Thursday, Trump challenged Biden’s competency while explaining his dismay at the candidate’s surprising victories on Super Tuesday.

“Then we have this crazy thing that happened on Tuesday, which [Biden] thought was Thursday, but he also said 150 million people were killed with guns and that he was running for the the United States Senate,” Trump said.

“There’s something going on there,” the president added.

WHY ACTOR PAUL NEWMAN HAD CLASS & “OLD JOE” DOESN’T

The difference between 80 something Joe Biden and the late Paul Newman is in a word, “Class”. Paul Newman was a true professional and well liked, as well. His movies and business ventures were legitimate and their operations are still going, profitably without government hand-out. He had talent.

Contrast this with an old career, Democratic Political hack and cipher, Joe Biden. No real accomplishments in life outside of government. No business success and his popularity with a cross-section of Americans is minimal and doubtful, as well. Like the late Paul Newman, his memory is fading and yet, unlike the acclaimed actor and businessman, he can’t let go of the power because government and politics IS his life.

Joe Biden, a second tier player all along is a loser and won’t step-down honorably. He is typical of our political elites too. Ditto with the Russian hierarchy in the Communist Party (Politburo). They usually leave office only when they die either naturally or otherwise.

Bernie Sanders, who just a short time ago had a cardiac event requiring emergency hospitalization. He is not physically able to undertake 4-8 years in-office due to known health conditions. He would most likely die in-office, as do his Soviet counterparts.

Yet the Democratic Party have few (viable) alternative candidates at this point and are in complete denial, as they are desperate. Thus, Democrats have absolutely no money. Wealth does not necessarily equate to “Class”. Instead, they are hopelessly addicted- to power and control. No life outside of politics and government. Pathetic !

Yes, Craig, they seem totally pathetic. My sense at this moment is that it will be a “blow-out” for the Democrats, like the loss of George McGovern.
